The PantoRouter is fantastic, but the included dust port will not interface with any standard shop dust collection systems.

I designed some fittings to correct that.

The STL files for the fittings are on my website and can be emailed if needed.

Here is a three minute video that shows how they are made and how they work:

Embedding seems to be broken….so I just put in the link. Enjoy.

Just parking this here in case someone is searching for a way to make this work.

Must admit that the 3D printer has been a blessing for connections in my workshop… I reckon manufacturers have borrowed my dodgy tape measure… incredible how a 50mm dust connector from one brand differs to a 50mm connector from another brand. “same dimension” hoses are not interchangeable.

Your collector near the bit looks interesting and was wondering it’s suitability for a drill press.
Any chance of a few closeups?... forget that… I just saw the video… however, is it DP suitable and where do you get it?

It comes with the PantaRouter:

I have also thought that it could be used for a number of applications. I am thinking about designing something similar that is more generic.
